Solid review!
I remember reading about this when it was still in the prototype/testing phase, David Fritts helped designed it. Wish I could remember some of the details, there was some cool science to it. I remember the Rapala DT(also designed by Fritts) was the benchmark it was measured against when creating it.
It's definitely on my 'to try' list.

Cal... you didn't write what you don't like about the Berkley fushion trebles in your Dredger review, only that you thought they should be changed right from the box? I've fished several baits that carried the Fushion trebles and found them to be pretty decent.

Nothing specific - just that the hooks are generic, OEM. On baits that I intend to use longterm and rely upon, I usually make sure I have a hook with a solid reputation behind them.
